Get to Know Me

Spread the love

Hello Readers,

I am so glad you found me here. Let me tell you a little about myself. I am

  • an ISFP-A personality (
  • a follower of Jesus
  • a wife (43 years and counting)
  • a mother
  • a grandmother ( 12 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren
  • a teacher (I’ve been in education for 25+ years.)
  • a photography enthusiast
  • a crafter
  • an avid reader
  • a seamtress

You could also say I am a life long learner. I love learning new things and my latest endeavor is this blog. As I am very close to retirement, I decided to start a blog to supplement our income . Yes, I know my exact retirement date. I am looking forward to this new chapter in my life so I can do more reading, crafting, sewing, and photography.

I have begun this journey by reading other blogs. It has simply floored me, the amount of blogs and the diversity of them that are available to read.  I have found myself attracted to the blogs that teach frugality, parenting, and overall lifestyle posting. I do enjoy the decorating blogs a lot also.

Some of the blogs I follow are:

  • The Frugal Girl
  • Sarah Titus
  • Happy Frugal Mama
  • Frugal Debt Free Life
  • Making Sense of Cents
  • Sixth Bloom
  • Picky Pinchers
  • Frugally Blonde
  • Natalie Bacon

To name a few.


I have to confess, I like to shop.  I like finding good deals and using coupons and coupon apps.  As I go on this blogging journey, with you I hope, I let you in on my secrets for finding good deals and saving money.


Since I am a photography enthusiast you’ll see lots of pictures threaded throughout my posts. Since I just am getting started, I don’t have the images to go with everything yet. But, if you’ll hang in there with me, I will.

I am also active on Facebook,  Pinterest, Twitter, and Instragram. I am still learning how to maneuver around Twitter and Instragram so they are not quite as busy.

I am glad you stopped by and I hope you drop in again.

I hope you have a pleasant day!

My life verse.
